bangali dada ki joy .By the way, for bhakts that are amazed by RE "tek-na-laji acheef-ment" .
RE started making Bullet 500s for Enfield around 1949.
The design stayed the same for 45 years. Yes...... 45. you heard right. Production continued in India when RE UK folded up in 1967.
Then Eicher bought the company in 1994 and brought in Phoren designers and experts who designed a UNIT P-Twin engine with various bores (a la Norton, BSA and Triumph Brit-bikes). No surprise, since more than half of the design staff is ex-Triumph next door.
Eicher also bought a frame kit manufacturer called Harris Performance in Hertfordshire UK to design RE frames.
And they also opened a UK design center to design their new models like the Himalayan, the Continental GT, Classic, Meteor, Interceptor etc.
Royal Enfield commissioned its secretive new Global Technology Centre at the Bruntingthorpe Proving Grounds, Leicestershire, in 2017. The "RE Tech Centre" is housed at one of the largest privately...www.haywards.co.uk
So the RE bikes are like the Indian LCA jet.
They claim it as Indian, when all is "phoren designed" and the critical items are "phoren-made", like Brembo brake calipers etc.
Still - quality of the rest of it however, remains truly Indian.
OK, RE - ka Langoti gir gaya.
